Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Unhinged: Angry Tweets And Another Muslim Ban

Donald Trump continues to act unhinged with a series of angry tweets over the weekend accusing President Obama of tapping his phones. Trump’s baseless assertions eclipsed calls for his attorney general to resign and came just before the release of his Muslim Ban Version 2.0. We’ll turn to journalist Marcy Wheeler for more. And, we’ll spend the rest of the hour examining two industries that are preying on Americans. Jeremy Mohler from the group In the Public Interest will discuss the private prison industry and what Trump’s reversal of Obama’s decision to phase out private prisons means. And, Tressie McMillan Cottom joins us to discuss her new book called book Lower Ed: The Troubling Rise of For-Profit Colleges in the New Economy.
